  • Guidance on the requirements for all registered apprenticeship programs in the State of Oregon
  • The fundamentals of the registration, movement, and completion of apprentices in the apprenticeship system

Oregon Apprenticeship Tracking System (OATS): Next training is Wednesday, July 24, 2024 at 11AM (click here to sign up)
(Please note: this training is for program administrators only. It is not for training agents or apprentices.)

The Oregon Apprenticeship Tracking System, or OATS, is a web application required to be used by registered apprenticeship programs to document all actions and activities throughout the life-cycles of apprentices, training agents, and committee members. OATS allows administrators and coordinators to have quick access to information about the status of apprentices and training agents as well as an overview of the demographics of their program(s).

Participants in this training will:
  • Understand how the OATS program assists apprenticeship staff with the administration of their program
  • Learn how to navigate the web-based OATS application
  • Electronically manage apprentices, training agents, and committee members using OATS
